Apollo Hospitals and Anatomiz3D Medtech has announced a tie to design and print complex nature of implants. Both will be taking in pioneering initiative for establishing hospital 3D-Printing labs in India and work on 3D printed implants enabling doctors for visualizing and printing implants for complicated cases. The very first system that will be launched at the Apollo Health City, located at the Hyderabad.
Hospital 3D printing labs will be providing 3D printing service that will help in better healthcare using anatomical models for pre-surgical planning and education and drilling guides.
Anatomiz3D is a leading company using technology that helped surgeons over 1000 cases. There will be a multi-disciplinary team consisting of mechanical engineers, AM Engineers, 3D designers working with Apollo Hospitals medical and surgical talent.
Lab will be providing Anatomical Models that are life-size replicas of patient’s anatomy that can accurately reconstruct from CT/MRI scans in 3D models created in multiple materials and colors. Further, 3D printed in biocompatible material and surgical guides that are fitted on predetermined area of patient’s bone and guides.
Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group said, “We are proud to once again be the pioneers in bringing the latest in medical technology to benefit our patients. It would not be wrong to say that with the Hospital 3D-printing labs, the future of healthcare is here! Personalization of healthcare is the new mantra and advances in genomics and precision medicine are driving personalized prevention and treatment. From specialized medicines for targeted therapies to customized implants and prosthetics, 3D-printing technology is transforming the medical environment providing a fast, accurate and economical solution to take medical care to the next level! As healthcare evolves, 3D-printing will play an important part of this future transformation.”
Ms Firoza Kothari, Co-founder and CTO Anatomiz3D said, “Ever since 2015, Anatomiz3D has believed in the potential of 3D Printing in personalizing healthcare and has seen itself follow a path to translate its vision to a reality. Our strategic collaboration with Apollo Hospitals, a progressive organization and one of the pioneers in adopting new technologies early on that are beneficial to its patients, is a strong step towards such large scale translation. Over the years, we have had the opportunity to work with multiple clinicians associated with Apollo Hospitals, and it is a moment of pleasure and pride for us to bring this technology to them directly in their facility, to use in their practice as well as explore in research and development. Together, Apollo Hospitals and Anatomiz3D aim to make customized medical devices easily accessible to patients, for an enhanced quality of life”
